Memories of Farnborough

Old Farnborough Police Station

Does any one have photo's of the old Farnborough police station in lynchford road. I cannot find it at all grateful for any help.

Busk Crescent

I have been looking up the old photos of places I have visited and came across Busk Crescent, Cove, Farnborough. Somebody wrote about the crescent. I knew John Mcbryde and his family who lived at no 27 in the 6190s. I visited John for a weekend when the Farnborough Airshow was on. I met John when I was at Butlins with my ...Read full memory

Lynchford Rd.

As a young child, I remember feeling so scared as I walked passed the Elephant and Castle pub, as often there would stand an old man in a long black coat and a black hat, and he would very slowly shake his finger at me.Whether it was just me or any child, I never knew, but it used to frighten the life out of me!

School Events

Very vivid memories of our school nativity plays at the town hall (I played Mary twice!) and also playing the piano in front of a large audience after coming first in my age group at the Farnborough and Aldershot music festival

The Farnborough Puddle

I used to love The Puddle, I used to go there every weekend during term time from when it opened at Easter every year, until in closed in October. I would try to go every day during the summer holidays, but I didn't always have the money to get in, I would plead with my mum to give me the money to go, I used to do ...Read full memory

King George V Park

When I left Farnborough in 1957, there was no ornamental pond, just woodland where us kids spent many happy hours playing. There was a small pond at the lower end of the field called Halls pond ( if I'm not mistaken) which has long gone. The area on which the school now stands was just rough land but a great place to ...Read full memory


My godmother and her parents lived 'forever' at Gravel Road, just up from the small shop on the Park Avenue end. With a marvellous garden of flowers, fruit and poultry; a walkway tunnel of Quince, a black & white tiled pathway to the brass shoedogs and whitestoned step it was my home on and off for many years. From birth ...Read full memory

The Pond In King George V Park

Lovely memories of this park in all seasons - piles of leaves in the autumn and the pond frozen in the winter, the 'donkey derby', taking my puppy for walks and eventually it was the place I 'ran away' to when I was told we were moving away!

Roman Camp

My dad was a Sgt in the medical corp, I was about 12/13 at the time, and we lived on an upper story of a maisonette, I suppose they were called, in Jerome Square. I have memories of "the Jerome Square gang" doing raiding parties to the McCadam Square bonfire to take wood for our fire for Nov 5th. Playing in the air raid ...Read full memory

A memory of Farnborough

My Father's Home

Osborne Road is where my Father was brought up in the 1930s. This street was very close to the Royal Aircraft Establishment and this generated my Dad's great interest in aeroplanes and flight. He was later to join the RAF and served during the Second World War.
